from Anam Cara––The Eclipse and Its Implications 

 Anam Cara Meditation Foundation
 Perennial Wisdom For The Soul's Journey

Dear Dorothy,

Today is the day that millions of people have been anticipating for many years! This solar eclipse has received more publicity than any other that I can remember. With the world in such turmoil it is understandable that people want to gaze at the heavens and appreciate the predictable movements of the celestial spheres. Humanity has longed for such order on earth for thousands and thousands of years.

The sun and moon are ancient symbols of the Self-luminous One and the mind which can only reflect the light of the Self, the Light of Consciousness. Like the moon, the brilliance and clarity of the mind may wax and wane, but the radiance of the pure Light of Consciousness, one's true Self, is never diminished. Thus, as we gaze at the eclipse we can appreciate the celestial drama unfolding above and within ourselves. How often does the mind eclipse the radiance of one's own divine nature? The play of dark and light is the nature of this world.

What illumines even the darkness?

The Light of Consciousness.
The Seer who is never Seen.
The Knower who is never known.
Your own sublime Self.
Your Buddha nature.
Your Christ Consciousness.
You are beyond all names, all forms.
Dwelling in this wisdom you go
beyond all darkness, all suffering,
into the eternal light of wisdom,
compassion and love.

May you know the Light of Consciousness, radiant and pure, illuminating every moment of existence.

This is what it means to be living in the state of meditation, illumined and free.

To dive more deeply into Living Meditation you may want to take our October 6-8 retreat that is titled Living Meditation. The details are below.

 Living Meditation: Deepening ; Integrating Practices
 Retreat: Oct. 6-8, 2017 Wisdom House, Litchfield, CT

Led by Lawrence Edwards, PhD, poet, author, mentor and teacher.

Living Meditation will take you into the rich meditative practices and teachings found at the most profound levels of the great spiritual traditions, where the ultimate state of non-dual awareness is all that exists. In this retreat you will learn to deepen and integrate meditation into everyday life. Meditation uplifts our work life, our home life, our health and all that we engage in.

Meditation begins as a set of practices and then the transformative power of meditation processes becomes apparent as we shed old conditioned patterns of mind. The transformative processes develop and ripen, opening the boundless domain of the state of Living Meditation, also known as sahaja samadhi, in which every aspect of our life is transformed.

In this retreat you will learn how to deepen your practices, further empower the transformative process of meditation and discover the state of radical freedom, the state of Living Meditation. This is the state of the Living Presence that already exists within you as your true nature. Some call this their Buddha nature, or their Christ nature, or their Divine Self, but whatever we call it, it is beyond words, beyond the mind, yet at the very heart of our Being. Come to know your state of radical freedom, come to know the living presence of the One.

This retreat incorporates the classic forms of Shaktipat diksha and the unique Maha Kali Yantra empowerment. Everyone is welcome to attend. No prior experience is necessary.

Registration is limited to facilitate learning. Please register early to be ensure a space.

Thank you all for your notes of appreciation for our newsletter. It's great to hear from you!

Everyone has the heart to be a true friend of the soul, an "Anam Cara." By embodying that ideal we serve to help others find love and compassion within themselves and the world.

Our highest nature is always manifest in relationship - to all other beings, to the environment, community, loved ones, and in relation to our own body and mind. Becoming mindful of the quality of our relationships allows us to learn where the light shines and where it needs to shine more. The ideal of Anam Cara is to continuously endeavor to expand the depth and the inclusiveness of the loving kindness we bring into every relationship, every moment, every breath.

If you have any suggestions, comments or sharings, for our newsletter please don't hesitate to e-mail me and I'll do my best to respond.

The Anam Cara Meditation Foundation is a 501 (C) 3, non-profit educational organization dedicated to teaching meditative practices. Our non- denominational programs are open to all. There are free meditation instructions and downloadable audio files of guided meditations on the meditation page of our website.

May all beings know complete freedom from suffering and may all our actions reflect only wisdom, compassion, patience and love.
